    "I will admit a certain morbid curiosity about the items you took from the fallen Northmen, so I shall accept your invitation. I thank you for your candor and hospitality. I must go and prepare my report."

    Piater Nackbiddle and his appraisers pale a little at the new timetable and redouble their effort. The auction house also has to move to expedite things. However, they are used to Captains rushing them. Ships sitting still are ships losing money.

    The men are more than ready for a little shore leave...

    Having done what he can and with the ship to be put into drydock that afternoon, Michael will hire guards for the ship and will grant the crew 72 hours liberty and pay them their wages to date in addition to a 100 gp advance on their crew share. That should create a huge buzz

    Other than that, Michael will wait for Willum and Guiseeppi to arrive back and will stay engage rooms for himself and the inner council at one inn.

    In regards to the ship, Michael will have her totally refiitted and repaired, The entire ship to be scrubbed, cleansed repainted and resealed etc.
    He will have the additional cargo holds of holding that he ordered before setting sail also installed bringing them to 8 thus doubling his capicty and freeing up more deck space for crew etc.

    Also the ballista and catapult mounts he ordered and swivel guns he will have attached..brining it up to 18 side mounted ballista that can be attached to the main decks and 6 swivel guns per side as well as the two new catapults.

    He will then have to see about buying new food etc to restock the ships food stores...as well as exchanging all the old water in the bath tubs for new etc..and taking delivery of his 10 fresh water barrels (200 gallons) that refresh themself each day.

    Mangram suggests the Great Pearl. It caters to the needs of ships in port and you can get a floor just for your officers allowing a certain amount of privacy. Such requests are common from seamen not entirely comfortable on land and used to the close accommodations of shipboard life. The Inn is named for the treasure recovered from the Pearl Reefs by the Captain who founded it. He is credited with finding the largest pearl ever. That and other pearls he brought back paid for the Inn. His grandson still runs the place. It is in a good location close to the docks and the government offices. While not the nicest or most prestigious Inn it is popular with seafaring folk.

    The work begins on the ship as ordered.

    OOC: Sorry for the delay, lots going on this week.

    The crew departs eagerly and while there is a bit of excess given their long stressful voyage and the surplus of coin in their pockets, there are no serious incidents.

    Watching the market daily it starts to move slowly up. Winter is coming on and furs and whale oil are important commodities for that season so such a bump in price gains little notice. As the news begins to trickle in prices are soon double what Michael paid for cargo in Icewatch. It seems likely that they will continue to rise. The smartest of the investors are still buying having seen what is happening.

    OOC: Going to seek an arcanist or perhaps a priest to enchant the Sapphire? Gonna check the stuff you got off the fallen northmen for magic?

    Absolutly, Michael can do that at will he will check everything over.

    He will have it checked out he is just unsure of how he wants it enchanted yet....most likely something along the lines of making the monster triple hulled iron behamoth he is having built stay afloat and sail like a smaller clipper ship..hope that makes sense.

    Michael will continue to watch the markets..and see how well Guiessppe and Willum have done on buying as well as how much he could buy that first day.

    He will also contact PL on Terger and see how much he has managed to option thru Cambry and the Wheellands etc.. as well as a visit to the attroney here to see how much they got in the 10 days before the Retribution arrived.

    Micheal discovers he has done very well with very large amounts of Icewatch sourced goods purchased in all locations. He's optioned well into the millions.

    OOC: I think I understand what you mean for the gem, you want it to be a sort of heart stone powering the new ship with seaworthiness and speed. Perhaps some defense as well?

  • #709
    Stunned but practicle, Michale will send out orders to sell at 15 but hopefullly 25 milllion not wanting to risk even bigger gains..such a resounding hit he thinks will secure the company and with the profits from the other sales...leave them beholding to no one within his lifetime more or less


    Yes , you exaclty right about the new ship.

    The price continues to go up as the likely shortages become clear and other speculators join in. Soon prices are near record highs.

    OOC: Care to roll a d20?
